ISS Aerospace designed and manufactured the unmanned aerial vehicle and payload systems for the Total METIS project. The first phase of this program was successfully demonstrated in Papua New Guinea in December 2017. This was a novel new system for remote placement of geophones into primary jungle environments in a bid to cut down on the enviromental impact of Oil & Gas exploration.
